HEX by Thomas Olde Heuvelt
"Black Spring seems like a normal American town, yet the residents bear a secret. Their town is cursed, haunted by the Black Rock Witch – a 17th century woman whose eyes and mouth have been sewn shut. Should the stitches ever be removed, the story..." Read more of this review »
Thomas Heuvelt and 7 other people liked Lynn Williams's review of Hex:
Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt
"Hex is a unique story about a witch who haunts the inhabitants of a small town. It’s a creepy tale that stays with you after you finish reading and gives you plenty of food for thought - but probably in a way that you really wouldn’t suspect.

“Later, when he was able to see the bigger picture, he imagined that wild animals must feel the same kind of uncontrollable fear when they first inhaled the smoky air of a forest fire.”

“In Black Spring they knew that desperate needs led to desperate deeds.”
